Vascular calcification is currently recognized as an important pathobiological process in atherosclerosis, but the mechanism remains elusive. Given the similarities in vascular calcification and bone formation, 18F-sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) is now considered a novel marker of vascular calcification. This study aimed to correlate 18F-NaF accumulation with the histological characterization of vascular calcification in carotid plaques.
